Possible contractions for April the giraffe

Watch live: Possible contractions for April the giraffe

The park's official site for April notes that giraffes are pregnant for 15 months, and the baby will weigh around 150 pounds (68 kilograms) and be about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall.

The zoo also said April appears "a little more on edge" and is "not being as lovely as usual". Their gestation period can be anywhere from 400-460 days, which explains why April's keepers are having a hard time pinpointing the exact date she'll deliver.

In the 12 hours before it was removed, the live "giraffe cam" YouTube video stream had gotten more than 20 million views, Patch said. The Animal Adventure Park says they can not keep the calf because it would lead to incestuous mating and would "undermine the genetics of the program and species". A giraffe's pregnancy lasts about 15 months.

April has developed some new behavior patterns, including her standing and sleeping positions, Animal Adventure Park wrote in its Friday Facebook update.

April's pregnancy and anticipated delivery has captured the attention and curiosity of thousands of people across the country, partly after the live stream was initially removed over complaints the stream of the pregnancy amounted to "sexually explicit" content.

28, April and her mate Oliver got to spend time together outside.

Dobby's birth was a bit of a surprise to zoo officials.

The zoo plans to hold an online naming competition for the baby after it's born. But as any woman who's ever been pregnant can tell you, babies have their own schedules. His father, Dikembe, was born at the local zoo, which is home to the largest giraffe herd of any zoo, according to the organization's website. "I know April's bowel habits, I know how many spots she has, I know her routine".

HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Tom's narration of April's webcam? "Look at that magnificent long neck".
